By Richard Monkhouse

This astronomical atlas gains not just traditional megastar and galaxy maps, but additionally surprising third-dimensional stereographs (glasses provided). The publication comprises 3 units of entire full-sky maps that conceal neighborhood house, nearby area, and far-off house -- with over 20,000 galaxies. all of the stereographs were derived from the main exact info on hand, together with effects from the Hipparcos satellite tv for pc, and will be used to degree the approximate distances among the items depicted. The far-off house maps signify the most whole mappings of the galaxies on hand to beginner astronomers, and their accompanying 3-dimensional perspectives offer tantalising glimpses of constitution on the biggest scale of the universe.
